Instead of the traditional evergreen wreath, you could go for a homemade one made using citrus fruits. It is very easy to make and provides your front door with an appealing and welcoming vibe. Begin with one circular piece of the florists’ foam, moving on to using wooden florists’ picks to secure larger fruits, like oranges. Then continue with the smaller items, such as limes and kumquats. Tie all of this with a thick bright red velvet ribbon.

 

Monochromatic Color Scheme
